‘Devotion’ is a DownBeat Editor’s Pick

Devotion from Dave Douglas and Uri Caine, and Andrew Cyrille is an Editor’s Pick in this month’s Downbeat Magazine.

In addition to noting the album’s “inspired interplay,” writer J.D. Considine has this to say:

… devotion can be offered in a variety of ways, and no single version is better than the others. Perhaps that’s why the album ends with Alexander Johnson’s sacred harp hymn, “Devotion,” and a performance that captures both the literal and figurative meanings of the word, as well as offering some of the album’s most inspired interplay.”

The album is available for pre-order the album on Bandcamp and iTunes ahead of release day on Friday, May 17.
